This is the forty third puzzle you will encounter in Professor Layton and the Unwound Future. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Art. In order to solve this puzzle, you must indicate where the board must be cut into two pieces to arrange both pieces into a square.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    Compare the shape of the strange piece of wood to the square version in the upper-right corner. Keep the number of the squares on each side in mind. That should give you a good place to start.

Hint Two
    Each side of the square you're trying to make is five squares across. If you keep that in mind, you should be able to figure out where to make your cut.

Hint Three
    You may have noticed that you could simply cut a straight line two rows in from the right side and then flip and rotate that piece to make it fit. However, that's against the rules because it would mess up the grain.

    The cut you need to make is a step pattern...

Super Hint
    From the left edge of the empty square in the bottom-right corner, cut up one square, over to the left one square, then up one more square. That's it!
